  • For only 4 Euros you'll discover interesting stuff about the famous Amalfi paper (made using cotton instead of trees!! It's a luxury paper still used by Vatican I'm their official documents!!). Museum is interactive (hands in) so you'll be able to make your paper!! Really cool. And you'll be able to see how old machines worked. Staff very nice and English speaking. Suggested!!!
